Wordle quickly won over many players due to its simplicity and ability to be easily shared on social media. Many people play Wordle while having coffee in the morning, on breaks from work during the day, or even on their streams.

No matter how you choose to do it, the important thing is to have fun.

Care must be taken not to let the tension of the game turn fun into frustration. A few tips and tricks can help any player to face Wordle’s daily challenges. A new word is chosen every day, which means that some days will be more difficult than others, requiring more knowledge or luck from players.

Some of the most common strategies involve starting with words with many vowels to quickly eliminate many different word choices. For this, it is important to know words with mostly vowels to be used in the first attempts. Other players prefer to use lots of attempts with totally different letters in each one. This makes the chances of finding all the letters in the correct answer very high, turning the last attempts into a kind of anagram game, rearranging the letters that were previously found.

If you’ve used your favorite strategies and only found that the secret word has ‘DR’, here are some five-letter words with ‘DR’, sorted alphabetically so you have less trouble filtering your choices by the letters you’ve already eliminated.

Another good tip to get it right as early as possible is to find which other vowels are present in the word of the day to narrow down your options. Beware of words that may have repeated letters and don’t forget to try words you already know first, since Wordle tends to choose more common words as the right answer.
